Libbie Mill-Midtown Getting in Shape with Solidcore Gym as Newest Tenant
Retail in the Gumenick community continues to grow with innovative workout service
Henrico-based Gumenick Properties is pleased to announce that Solidcore, a high-intensity fitness studio, has leased approximately 2,000 square feet in the Penstock Quarter building located at 5001 Libbie Mill East Blvd, adding to the growing list of retail services moving to Libbie Mill – Midtown. Peter Vick and Harrison Hall of Divaris Real Estate, Inc., represented Gumenick and Sean Young of Sabre Real Estate Group represented Solidcore.
The Washington, D.C.-based Solidcore was founded in 2013, and now has 44 studios in cities across the nation and plans for further growth. The company offers a unique, 50-minute, high-intensity, full-body workout where clients use a machine specifically built for Solidcore that leverages spring loads for resistance. The equipment strengthens the entire body through a series of slow controlled movements with quick transitions. Classes are capped at 15 people, ensuring each client receives personal attention and individualized coaching. Solidcore’s clients come from all walks of life, including professional athletes, weekend warriors, stay-at-home moms, CEOs and former First Lady, Michelle Obama.
“The innovative fitness service of Solidcore is the ideal fit for the active, modern lifestyle of Libbie Mill – Midtown,” claims Karen Bunch, Gumenick Properties’ regional manager. “This new addition to our community offers an ultra-convenient workout option for our residents and nearby neighbors.”
In addition to Solidcore, progress continues at Libbie Mill – Midtown with the construction of the new Crafted Restaurant, projected to open this summer, and the buildout of Lumber Liquidators office headquarters. Plus, leasing demand is strong at Penstock Quarter, a new 327-unit apartment community that opened in December. These developments along with sales of new townhomes and condominiums, and the marketing of Harp’s Landing, a six-story Class-A office building to be built next to the Libbie Mill Library, exemplify Gumenick Properties’ plans to make Libbie Mill – Midtown the anchor to the growing midtown community.
